Well hubbed through debris is very likely.

So far, the population would suggest only a single die, with a production capacity of 1000 (or less if the die broke up). Hubbed through debris as an explanation works if a working hub transiently had the debris lodged in the location and only a single working die was hubbed (or more than one working die was hubbed, but only one went into production). If the nightcrawler was created on a single die by intentional modification, the same holds true, with production of 1000 (or less if either the die broke up, or if the modification was placed after the production with that die had already started).

I think this thread IS the population report.

By my count, the total should be up to around 12 now, with Calvin's acquisition. There was a stable population of 6 (http://forum2.ikegroup.info/viewtopic.p ... wler#p6487), then Bryan's that he recent sent to PCGS, then a 2 nightcrawler find in a lot of 5 by Randy (one of which he is willing to sell: http://forum2.ikegroup.info/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=1933), then the recent two-coin raw lot selling on eBay for just under $700 (buyer not identified yet).

Unfortunately, we can't be certain of the raw to slab ratio (we see raw purchases/confirmation, but don't always get grade reports back after they have been slabbed). I know of three that are currently at TPGs in the process of getting slabbed right now. As for top pop in a PCGS holder, I am aware of Brian Vaile's PCGS PR69 DCAM night crawler: http://www.pcgs.com/SetRegistry/alltime ... x?s=107351 (I have to edit that population statement :lol: )
My coin is one of the original stable population of 6 Night Crawlers. It was purchased in the raw, and I am just now getting around to sending it to be graded.
I'll keep everyone posted on what it comes back as once completing the restoration and TrueView.
As far as the population, I think Steve's assumption that there are fewer than 1,000 specimens created (probably a lot less survivors out there) is accurate. To also echo Andy, now that everyone is hunting this coin, I wouldn't be surprised if more were found in before long.
Back to the Hunt...
